MEASURING THE RATE OF ATMOSPHERIC CORROSION IN MICROCLIMATES
4 STATISTICAL ANALYSIS
LINEAR REGRESSION analyses for best slope or best straight line were carried out conforming to standard practice (Bennet and Franklin 1954; Youden 1951). Regression coefficients and constants and their standard errors were calculated using built-in functions of Lotus 1-2-3, on an IBM PC AT. The 95% confidence intervals were calculated by multiplying the standard errors of the coefficients with the t-value for the appropriate number of degrees of freedom (Youden 1951, table 1).
